- Rapid report development, since the design interface makes coding easier.
- We can extend it to complicated reports with interactive charts and enhance the understanding of business models.
- Exposes a report object model that can interact with other controls on the ASP.NET Web form.
- It can be programmed to export the reports into widely used formats such as PDF, Word, Excel, HTML, and RTF.
Improvements to My Organization:
We are using it for pixel perfect reporting, and that is why it is better than other reporting tools.
Room for Improvement:
It needs better integration with Hadoop as well as enhancements for more analytical usage.
Also, a secured end user cannot modify data if the report is generated via Crystal Reports. It can only be done if the data is in HTML format.
We have had no issues with the deployment.
We have had no issues with its stability.
There have been no issues scaling it for our needs.
Analyze it first as to whether it is a good fit for your needs. There are other good products available for analytical needs, which Crystal Reports doesn't yet provide.
